Hello, Congratulations and welcome, EVERYONE here are so helpful and friendly, Im sure any questions you have or advice you need will be fully answered before you know it!!!!

 

certified or notorized copy of driver's license or passport, i think this means to take it to a solicitor/lawyer or maybe the foreign office to get them to certify that you are who you say you are!! I think they stamp the back to say they have verified its you...

 

Happy Planning x

I agree with Nicyx, they probably want you to take your license to the notary and the stamp will confirm that you are who you say you are. You can find a notary at any lawyers, real estate or insurance office. It's usually a nominal fee like $10.

Good luck!

Welcome Sheena! As the other ladies have advised, certified and/or notarized is pretty much the same thing. You need to bring these copies with you (and leave them with the magistrates) as proof you and your FI are who you really say you are. Of course, you can't leave the originals, so that's why they ask for certified/notarized copies. If you have a lawyer, he/she can notarize them for you. Alternatively, Google "notary public" and your area and you will get plenty of hits.

Hi Sheena:

 

Welcome! I'm an attorney and a notary public. (Not all attorneys are notaries, you need a notary).

 

You would present a copy of your license or passport to the notary along with the original and they would attest that you personally appeared before them and that the copy is a true and correct copy of the original. Make sure you appear in person.

 

As to a certified copy of passport or driver's license - that would suggest some type of government certification. I have not heard of a DMV or passport offices doing that. I did a quick search online and it appears that some other countries allow a judge to certify such documents. I'm not aware of this procedure, at least in my area.

 

I'd recommend you go the notary route, get an extra notarized copy for yourself, and fax or e-mail a copy of the notarized document to your resort to make sure its sufficient.

 

Hope that helps!
